Default Mailstreet vs. myblackberryus?

Please Login to Remove!

I just read a topic on myblackberryus and was wondering if the $10 per month includes the wireless syncing of email and calender with your pc? I am currently using mailstreet.com and I have to pay $12.00 per month for the exchange account and then another $10.00 per month for the BES services as well for the wireless syncing. I have already done this and paid the $40 set up fee for the BES but have others that I work with that want to do the same. Does anyone use this service that could give some feedback?

Also I keep reading about the new 4.0 BWS that will eliminate the need for exchange servers? Will this new upgrade allow Good technology or wireless syncing up email and calender?

Thanks

I think MyBlackberry is strictly MDS service. If all you require is MDS (Mobile Data Services then it's great for those who need an inexpensive way to run apps such as IM, SSH etc. by the looks of it syncs email only?

Unlike services such as eOutlook, Mailstreet etc. which offer Exchange, BES, MDS MyBlackberry is strictly MDS. Rumours are the new BWC 4.0 will offer users MDS no idea if there will be an added cost or if it will be offered by all carriers.
